Xago Juarez, aka Luis Juarez, the professor at SJSU and from Salinas, where John Steinbreck lived when he wrote “In Dubious Battle” hangs at Cafe Zoe a place for peace hope humanity and community for reals — and did I mention I am still processing my Earthwise@20 hear? — with his friend from this hood the hoodie this time but probably not the “hoodio” too much too much to hope for — Isaiah “here i am send me” excuse the digression, dig — Armando Castellano, the French horn director celebrando la musica clasica Latinoamericano; both men with ear plugs and tunes rockin’ and cranking away on their respective instruments — as I am, the other side of the window — I pause una pausa muy breve — to shoot them one more time hit them one more time.

I retreated back to my statins quick enough not to offend I hope and did not get back to my main riff: is this about class as much as ethnicity and so-called but not by me “race”?

Stay tuned.

We got next.

edit to add a few minutes later, although my computer seems to think or WordPress seems to think I am updating from an hour ago not from now: off all the dangling threads here, the one I tugged was to try to reach Steven Bernstein thru his guy Edelstein I’ve never met, and I am trying to find the name of the French Horn player, Paul something, who was in Diaspora Suite at Bottom of the Hill, January 27, 2008, I have pictures, I have Steven’s cell and landline in my old stupid cell phone, the search-injuns should have this or did have this but apparently don’t: mazel tov, l’hitrout and HIT ME!! And I tap not a high hat but “ethnicities” which is very specifically Plastic Alto code for “jewish” In jew-bias battle mode. Stein-breck. argh argh argh
